I appreciate your input! Thank you!

EDIT: As far as X470 boards... I was curious. I did read somewhere that with intel you can essentially buy a garbage board and still get great performance out of intel chips... Though AMD Proc's were a little more touchy in that regard. Either way... are any specific X470 boards killing it currently? Or one most suited for the upcoming AMD 7nm chips that have been discussed?

Who put the fun in Dysfunctional?
